To the Editor:
I have an answer to the Republicans' old, tired slogan: "Are you better off?" It is: Yes we are! That makes a good chant. Yes we are! Yes we can!
I am 80 – a Roosevelt baby – and I remember how long it took to come back from the Depression. The new medical care may make it easier for people like me to get health insurance. The guys are coming home from a war we should not have started, housing values are rising, and foreclosure is no longer a nightmare scenario. Other nations speak to us again after George W. Bush. Yes we are! Yes we are!
